The pleasure of coffee can be found
in the creative process
as well as in the results;
Coffee can be a solitary delight,
or savored with your dear ones

Coffee is a comfort,
whether from Cahoots Coffee Bar
or you’ve made it yourself;

We think coffee and poetry
are best taken together,
whether alone, or even better – with friends!

THE CHARACTER OF A COFFEE-HOUSE. . . .
BY AN EYE AND EAR WITNESS.

A Coffee House, the learned hold
It is a place where Coffee’s sold;
. . .
It reason seems that liberty
Of speech and words should be allowed
Where men of differing judgments crowd,
And that’s a Coffee House, for where
Should men discourse so free as there?
– Author unknown, 1665 A.D.

When you start writing—and I think it’s true for a lot of beginning writers—you’re scared to death that if you don’t get that sentence right that minute it’s never going to show up again. And it isn’t. But it doesn’t matter—another one will, and it’ll probably be better. TONI MORRISON, The Sight of Memory

Does the task of writing seems too arduous? Find inspiration in George Orwell’s essay “Why I Write,” and settle back with your favorite brew at Cahoots!
